Same setting, different time

As Russia, or to be more accurate Volgograd is not predominantly inhabited by the Muslims, the place of worship i.e mosque is scarce (one vast region with approximately 2 mosques only). Fridays are the quintessential day for worshipers to flock the Linkoranskaya Mosque where local Muslims, immigrants and international students alike congregate for the weekly khutbah and Friday prayers.

During this time, on the way home I always take some opportunity to capture the neighborhood around the mosque area. You may say this is how a typical Russian rural looks like, with cute brick/wooden domiks (literally small houses) dotting the area.

I wonder who's being carried away to the hospital...

A quiet ally
The pics here show two same areas with two different atmosphere - one with the snow still heavy (slosh alert!) on the ground and another when the latter melts and reveals quite decent pavements. Oh yes, not to mention I took the chance of the brightly-lit alley for some outfit posts for the blog. Even my prehistoric Sony Cybershot worked exceptionally well under the bright sunshine!

Scarf: Hanif's present from Egypt (merci beaucoup mon chou!), Mexx faux suede cardigan, Margiela mohair? tee, H&M marble-y effect jean, thrifted boots, Stella McCartney for Adidas bag. H&M specs
